    Scroll down to the "Flip to mute" option in the "INCOMING CALLS" section and press down on it
    .
    What this does, is when we flip the phone over, it will mute the phone call. If someone's trying to call us, it will be muted when we flip it over and we will no longer hear the noise. There are two options.

    The first option is "Mute once" and the second one is "Mute always"
    .
    This means that if you flip the phone over, and the phone is set to "Mute always", it will always be muted. If someone tries to call us again, the phone call will be muted because it's already flipped. If it's set to "Mute once" and the phone is flipped over to mute a call, it will not mute the next phone call. We'll have to flip the phone over again to mute the next phone call. These have different uses. Select the option that is right for you.
